"Stuffed with adrenaline-pumping action and mystifying ambiguity, Bear's series launch is a tempest of rousing SF adventure with a dash of Peckinpah."―Publishers Weekly on War Dogs
"Military sci-fi, action and adventure, and a whole lot of thought-provoking complexity."―San Diego Union-Tribune on War Dogs
"Packed with adventure and incident...and conveyed with gritty realism."―Kirkus on War Dogs
"Greg Bear's voice is a resonant, clear chord of quality binding some of the best SF of the 20th Century to the short list of science-savvy, sophisticated, top-notch speculative fiction of the 21st. More than a grace note, Hull Zero Three is a compelling allegro in the growing symphony of Greg Bear's finest work."―Dan Simmons
"Hull Zero Three is a grand adventure of scientific discovery in the tradition of "Orphans of the Sky" and "Rendezvous with Rama" -- by turns chilling and touching, it poses challenging questions about what it means to be human."―Charles Stross
"Hull Zero Three is a lean, mean, supercharged sense-of-wonder engine."―Alastair Reynolds on Hull Zero Three
"Not for those who prefer their space opera simple-minded, this beautifully written tale where nothing is as it seems will please readers with a well-developed sense of wonder."―Publisher's Weekly (Starred Review) on Hull Zero Three
"Greg Bear is one contemporary master of the old ways, and in Hull Zero Three he gives the generation starship theme - crystallized beautifully by Robert Heinlein in 1941's "Universe" - a vigorous makeover...."―BN.com
"The heart of the mystery is worthy of Bear in its bravura extrapolations into far-future science and moral ambiguity...a testament of faith both in human beings and in something beyond them, divine or indistinguishable from it, and it seems directed as much toward the world of today, with all its sinful affections and deceits, as it is toward the far future."―Locus on Hull Zero Three
"I loved Hull Zero Three - this book reminds me of why I fell in love with science fiction in the first place. Searing questions of humanity, a good old fashioned riddle of a plot, and excellent conceptualization make Hull Zero Three more than worth the effort."―thebooksmugglers.com

A soldier's journey is a travel without prediction, and in the presence of persons newly met and of friendships. The adventure comes in discovering always anew the capabilities and the dependability of oneself, and also of others. It goes without saying that these occur in the face of formidable challenges.
The strength in Bear's writing of this tale and recent others flows out his close attention with real experience -- and in understanding quite carefully how we may become involved with and be influenced in such circumstances.
Hanging in with once-Sargeant Venn gives its reward in who he quietly becomes, and what his steadfastness wins. Very worthwhile...
